We stayed in the front lake view room WITH OUR DOG 3 years ago. Loved the whole experience. This stay, l book with Travelocity, pet friendly reservation in conjunction w/ the fact we stayed there WITH OUR DOG already. At reservation desk, l say we have the dog... the staff gives me immediate attitude saying l didn’t tell them we didn’t tell them we had a dog and dogs can’t stay in that lakeside room. I told her l thought l made it clear in my reservation and WE ALREADY STAYED THERE IN THE ROOM WE BOOKED. She informs we can stay in a different room. Not lakeside. I’m tired, looking forward to nice stay, l don’t make any fuss, l’m like great but there will be a different rate. She says yes, of course. It’s more. 250 to over 300. Not exactly sure how much over. Then l have to sign saying he’s under 25 pounds. He’s a very well behaved, shaved (cleanliness) Bernese Mountsin dog. I signed it only because WE HAD ALREADY STSYED THERE IN THE NICEST LAKEVIEW ROOM WITH NO DIFFICULTIES WHAT DO EVER. It’s not up to me but l don’t understand the weigh policy in any case. He sleeps on the floor, gentle and quiet. Why does it matter? Anyway, we go to the room and it’s down almost like a cellar, through a horrid dark hall, with chords running trough it and it has 100’s of mosquitos on our door and on hallway doors. The room is worse. Old small bed. Tiny rickety couch. No table and chairs. Not even a bistro table. Tiny refrigerator that was so loud it woke us up...

The rockers on the front porch were a great place to watch an amazing sunset. The sprinkler system outside was spraying on our window at 2am which kept us up for awhile. The old buildings were in very good condition
